Snow Goose Hunter Gift Guide
Hunters are notoriously difficult to buy gifts for. We know what we want and normally just go ahead and buy it… and maybe ask for forgiveness later!
We asked snow goose hunters what they use every day in the field, and assembled this useful gift guide based on their feedback to help you choose great gifts for your favorite snow goose hunters.
Long days and adverse weather quickly take a toll on phones, MP3 players, GoPro cameras and more, quickly draining batteries and there’s always the risk of mud and water as well. With a solid 10,000 mAh capacity, we use the Dark Energy Poseidon portable chargers on everything from phones and MP3 players in the blind, to keeping GoPro cameras in the field charged on standby to start recording the action at a moment’s notice. The Poseidon is rated IP68 for waterproof and shockproof protection and is virtually indestructible – perfect for the snow goose field but also year-round for fishing, camping, and even just around the house.
Snow goose hunters can never have enough white hoodies. One for the field (which hopefully gets muddy and bloody) and one to keep clean for looking sharp when they’re not in the field. Our hoodies feature custom designs and high-quality durable screen printing on heavy blend fleece. Available in sizes Small through 4X, Large Tall, and XL Tall. Limited quantities!
The Bison SoftPak Cooler is tough as nails and keeps ice for up to 24 hours in 120 degree heat. Wrapped in a heavy duty 1000 denier vinyl shell, it’s stronger than any other soft-sided cooler, tear resistant up to 375 pounds, and with nearly an inch of insulation this beverage cooler keeps your drinks frosty cold. Use the exterior pocket for dry items and the MOLLE webbing to add your favorite accessories such as the YETI MOLLE Retractable Tool w/Bottle Opener, and turn it into a snow goose hunting cooler that’s designed just for you. Made in the USA! 🇺🇸
High-volume shooting and loud electronic calls can pack several season’s worth of hearing damage into a weekend snow goose hunt. High decibel levels quickly damage hearing and once it’s gone, it’s GONE forever. Quality hearing protection is so accessible today, there’s no reason not to use it. Walker’s Razor electronic muffs are slim to not interfere with mounting or sighting of the shotgun, have comfortable rubberized ear cups, and feature dual microphones with volume adjustment so you can hear what’s going on all around you.
The Snows Down Low OVERKILL HD snow goose e-caller offers some of the best features available of any electronic snow goose call on the market today, all at a great value. From the uncompromising commitment to clear and crisp audio quality even at ear-piercing volume, to industry-leading efficiency and run time, durable high-current twist-lock audio connectors, 100% oxygen free copper (OFC) speaker cables, or even the balanced weight distribution to make carrying the e-caller more comfortable – we considered everything when designing this e-caller and built it to be a reliable performer. Available in 2 or 4-speaker configurations.
Hunting journals have a storied tradition in waterfowl hunting. Long before everything was posted on social media, hunters would come in from the cold, and with a warm meal and hot coffee record the day’s conditions and events in handcrafted journals. Many tales have been told while poring over the pages of hunting journals, and it’s an incredible gift that can quickly become a treasured heirloom.
A guided snow goose hunt makes a great gift for any snow goose hunter. Snow goose hunting takes a lot of time and work to be successful. And while we don’t mind the work involved when it comes to our own hunts, it’s a nice change to have everything setup and ready go and maybe even hunt in a new area or check something off the bucket list. We work closely with several quality outfitters and are happy to discuss guided hunt gift ideas with you and connect you with our outfitters.
Protect your hard working hunting dog from stalks, sticks, briars, and other hazards while in the water or the field with the Rig’em Right Bloodline Elite. The Bloodline Elite dog vest features 3mm neoprene next to “skin” for warmth, 5mm neoprene throughout the chest, and an outer layer of heavy-duty canvas for protection with a sturdy braided grab handle.
We asked, and nobody said they would turn down a box (or case) of BOSS Shotshells under the tree. BOSS Shotshells are new for 2018 and promise to bring back the good ol’ days of wickedly heavy shot and denser patterns for improved on-target lethality and fewer crippled or wounded birds. With shot this dense, there will be plenty of pass-through and collateral damage in those big wads of snows to help stack the odds (and snows) in your favor. Available in 12ga 2 3/4″ and 3″, and 20ga 3″ in a variety of load offerings.
We all want to have the problem of picking up bucketfuls of shotgun shells during a hunt. Not only is it responsible ethics to keep the field clean, but you also don’t want brightly-colored or shiny objects in the field which give snow geese one more reason to not finish over the decoys. Make the job of picking up shells a little easier with the MOJO Pick Stick, and give your back a break.
Two factors of snow goose hunting success are to be where the birds want to be, and to be invisible in the field. The Fast Strike Blind system is a versatile concealment option which helps you achieve both. It’s portable and lightweight to quickly setup in virtually any environment, and can be configured many different ways to improve your hide in any terrain.

Most of the work on a snow goose hunt happens in the dark. The Petzl TacTikka + is a compact and powerful headlamp ideal as a primary or backup hands-free light source to make the job a little easier. It features a very long burn time and great lighting versatility: proximity or focused lighting for movement, and red lighting to preserve night vision. TACTIKKA + is a HYBRID headlamp that is also compatible with the CORE rechargeable battery. We really like these small headlamps because they’re bright, well-built, and take up very little room in the blind bag.
It’s tough to beat a hot cup of coffee on a cool morning in the blind. Make sure the coffee stays hot when the action picks up with the YETI Rambler 14 oz stainless steel insulated mug. Built strong and keeps drinks warm (or cold) for hours.
